vacuum tank under fender 69 with AC sb

I am trying to figure out the hose system for the vacuum tank next to the brake booster. ( not the headlights tank) Its a can hidden under the fender near the drivers door there near the brakes and the hoses are gone. It has two nipples coming out of it for hoses.Yes, my car is a mess and I havent owned it that long, but im trying to learn about it and fix it up. I assume this can is related to the vacuum passenger side kick panel flap? Or is it related to the heater hose vacuum valve or both? or maybe the vacuum thing thats seen under under the cowl vents near the windshield wiper? Id really appreciate knowing what this can is/does....and where the hoses are supposed to go to.

Re: vacuum tank under fender 69 with AC sb

rob first you need to buy the AIM Assembly Instruction Manual, it will show you all you ever want to know about the parts of your car. That vac tank is for the a/c controls in the dash and the kick panel on the pass side and the cowl vent diaphrams. They all kick in by vacuum when you slide the control arm to a/c on the dash. There is a vac 3way rubber splitter mounted on that dash control up under the dash that you cant see very easily. If any of that vac system was disconnected, make sure the primary vac hose off the manifold is capped off to stop vac bleeding while the engine is running.
Now go to any of the major parts companies like Ricks or Year One or others and get that AIM ordered.

Re: vacuum tank under fender 69 with AC sb

The vacuum hose from the manifold to the vacuum tank top nib under the fender near the brakes was missing. The three hoses under the dash to the heater controls ( kickpanel, heater shut off valve and under cowl vent diaphragm ) were disconnected and stuffed under the dash but were still ok and now put back on a nice three way splitter. Thanks for the heads up on the aim book to make these jobs less of a mystery.
